Enjoy our 3-for-$30 menu during Cleveland Restaurant Week!

It’s Cleveland Restaurant Week, and Ruth is especially excited because she’s just been elected to the board of Cleveland Independents, the group that sponsors this annual opportunity for you to sample our unique, locally based restaurants at special prices.

If you’re a loyal Bistro 185 guest, you already know what we can do, and we hope you’ll plan to join us during Restaurant Week for more. If you’ve never visited before and are thinking of giving us a try, we’re eager to have you stop by and sample the pleasures of dinner with us.

Plan now to come in Monday through Friday (through November 11) and choose your three-course feast by selecting one from each category:

Salads and Starters

If it’s been a while since you had a nice night out and you want to support the local economy when you plan that occasion…if you’re tired of the chain restaurant experience, but afraid that any “tab for two” at a one-of-a-kind place will end up in the three figures…or you just want to get together with some friends over a truly first-class meal without breaking the bank…you owe it to yourself to come to the Bistro and see how far we can stretch your $30! We know you’ll come back!

Wednesday Night Is Vegan Night!

It’s already coming time again for our monthly Vegan Night! We’ve got some great vegan dishes planned for this time around. Join us Wednesday, July 21 for these fabulous creations from Chef Jakub:

Appetizer
Mini Potato Latkes

Entree
Roasted Vegetables Topped with Miso Tahini Sauce Served with Brown Rice and Nori

Dessert
Grilled Peaches with Key Lime Cream and Blueberries

Here’s some other news that should make vegans and all foodies happy…did we mention that another great vegetable we have growing in our rooftop garden is eggplant? It is! And our eggplant has been growing big, fat and ripe, so expect to see it on our menu in the weeks to come, along with our squash, tomatoes, tomatillos, arugula, and terrific herbs! The peak of summer’s bounty is coming in now!

Summer is passing by quickly, though…hard to believe the back-to-school ads are out already, isn’t it? It won’t be long before fall is with us, and it’ll be a busy one for the Bistro. Watch this space for a wrapup of all the special events where you’ll be able to catch us away from the restaurant! In the meantime, take note that while we’ve still got plenty of summer left to spend with you, we’ll be closing the Bistro for vacation August 29 through September 4. We’ll be back open on September 7, the day after Labor Day.
